My mother was going to a different eye doctor for 2 years and never improving. Plus, we would wait up to 3 hours to see the doctor. When I finally brought her here, what a difference. We do not have to wait for our appointment, the most we have waited is 5 minutes. My mother's dry eyes are so much better. The staff are wonderful and helpful. Dr. Azman takes the time to answer any questions that we have. I also see Dr. Azman for my dry eyes. I have recommended him to several of my relatives and friends. They are worth the hour drive for my mother and I.

Great eye doctor in dealing with persistent dry eye. He was the first doctor to take the time to try to get to the root of the problem and make a diagnosis and treatment plan.

I’ve been suffering from dry eye disease for over 10 years. Retasis eyedrop’s were no longer working, and I was putting eyedrops, in, all day long. I found Dr Azman, who gave me a wonderful assessment, with all of the different assessment tools that they use. I was put on IPL treatments, with good results. My eyes do not feel like they did before this, much much better, not using eye drops, even close to the amount per day, that I was before . Dr Azman is very kind, explains everything, highly knowledgeable, gentle. His staff is very nice, attentive, and competent. I will eventually pick up my treatments in another 6 to 12 months It feels wonderful to know that I have ongoing help with my eye disease, And then it works!!

Dr. Benjamin Azman equals real hope and enormous improvement for a sufferer, like me with an extreme case of chronic blepharitis /(MGD anterior posterior). His vast knowledge of the lastest medicine, procedures, and maintenance hygiene has truly been life changing for me. He takes a thorough history and exam that is customized to your particular situation for the best results and the health of your eye and skin. He is meticulous with the Blephex procedure and takes time to make sure that it is done completely and accurately to achieve 100% accuracy. He welcomes your questions, is patient , responds quickly to requests or concerns, and listens with compassion ... His recommendations brought great visible progress with each step of the journey. He makes referrals to complete your eye care needs and maintenance long term. Your eyes will greatly improve, no matter what you were previously told elsewhere. I truly wish I had gotten to his practice sooner!!

I've always had sensitive eyes, but that sensitivity went to a whole new level this past spring when I started getting large styes that would not go away. At that point, my eyes were so sensitive, I stopped being able to tolerate any eye makeup no matter what brand, type or ingredients because it would make my styes worse. I also had a droopy left eyelid that began to negatively affect my vision so much that I couldn't complete a routine eye exam in early June, which is when I received my diagnosis of ocular rosacea. The treating optometrist at the time prescribed me medication that didn't work well for long, and told me that intense pulsed light (IPL) might be an option for me, although he didn't offer that treatment at his office nor could my provider offer me any option for that type of treatment for months. After that, I researched my condition and decided my best option was to find a dry eye specialist who offered IPL treatments for people like me, and who could schedule me for a treatment evaluation quickly. That's when I found Dr. Azman and Azman Eye Care Specialists. Best move I ever made for my eyes! Dr. Azman himself offered the greatly appreciated personal approach of speaking with me directly before scheduling my evaluation very quickly, which is something no eye care office I had called seemed able to do. My evaluation was comprehensive, and my recommended treatment of four IPL sessions started within the two weeks that followed it. These four sessions have made a world of difference for my eyes (my before treatment, mid treatment, and after treatment pictures SHOW it); my styes went away, my eye inflammation went WAY down, the skin around my eyes looks and feels healthier, and Dr. Azman's treatments very likely saved my eye's tear and oil glands from severe and permanent damage. I am happily now a loyal patient of Azman Eye Care Specialists.

My eyes were in very bad shape when I first seen Dr. Azman, primarily my eye lids. Eyes always got styes in them over the years and had to deal with red and inflamed eyes and eyelids. Since seeing Dr. Azman I’ve had know issues. I’m going on a year now without the problems I was dealing with before. My eyes and eyelids feel so much better. Vision is better and it’s so much easier to focus now that my eyes are cleared up. Thank you Dr. Azman you’re the man
